Staff provided exceptional customer service. Will stay again.
Front desk and housekeeping staff were friendly. Shuttle service was nice & friendly the first night we used it. We biked & walked the rest of our stay bc it was so close. Room was clean, bed & pillows comfortable. Room size was adequate (bathroom small for two people). A mid-range motel & you pay for location.
No continental breakfast or late night eats. We sat down at the restaurant for drinks and the bartender wouldn't serve us table side, only at the bar, so we left. No menu in the rooms for the restaurant. We ordered Pizza Luce instead, which was quite good. Lots of road noise from the interstate, fyi.
Proximity to Xcel center. Free shuttle to downtown.
Very dated decor throughout hotel and in the room. Bathroom was very small and made me feel like a giant while taking a shower. The entire place seems extreme old, outdated and not well maintained. Pool area was dirty, the showers did not work and there was a lot of dust on top of the faded, threadbare umbrellas at the tables surrounding the pool. I will absolutely try another hotel before staying here again.
The room was Very nice and Comfortable. The attached bar/restaurant was very nice as well.
we booked a king room and got a double room, not impressed by that
got a double room instead of the king we reserved
The shuttle that was provided to nearby events was very handy. Staff responsible for cleaning room was friendly and did a great job.
For the price, a microwave and refrigerator should have been provided.... continental breakfast, also. The in-room temperature controls did not seem to have any effect on the room temperature - it was variable.
I did like the restaurant and the bar at the hotel.
